Sympathy Cards



I am fortunate in that I haven't had to make a lot of sympathy cards, but already, I have discovered I am in a bit of a rut. All of my cards so far (I think six?) are blue and have flowers. Obviously, I have some subconscious fixation of what a sympathy card should look like. Anyway, this one uses the flower image from the Unity October Kit of the Month combined with a sentiment from Bevy of Butterflies. I made this card for a friend who needs to send a few sympathy cards, so I hope she agrees with my idea of what they should look like! I'm linking this to this week's Unity Friends with Flair. Have a great weekend!


Supplies: white & blue cardstock, Unity October 2010 Kit of the Month Take Time to Laugh & Unity Bevy of Butterflies stamps, Versacolor Atlantic blue ink, dimensionals Pin It Now!

I think you lean toward blue because it's soothing which is perfect for such a card! This is beautiful! TFS!

That cracks me up! Blue and flowers. Lovely card. I just made a sympathy card last week and was thinking that of all the cards you can give, a sympathy is a great one for being handmade. Thought went into this card for you...so blue with flowers is great because it is handmade.

This is beautiful, Lindsey! I think simple is best when making sympathy cards. The blue is calming for such an occasion but I feel bad for your friend who needs six of them. That is sad!

Your card is beautiful in its simplicity. I find it really hard to make sympathy cards!

this is pretty - love the focal image!! (even if it is blue and flowers LOL!)

Meg said...

Your formula certainly worked again, Linds. I like that the blue is not as somber as some other sympathy cards, but still appropriate for the situation.

I tend to do the same thing with sympathy cards... my theme seems to be butterflies. But I think you have a great formula, this is beautiful.

This is gorgeous--love the monochromatic color story! LOVE the simplicity--beautiful and def. perfect for this theme (which is always hard for me to make!).

Angela said...

Not a rut at all -- you've just found what works! What a lovely shade of blue, too.

Virginia L. said...

I also have certain ideas about sympathy card....not too bright and it has to be subtle. Yours is perfect! Just my kind of style!

They're not fun to make but this one is really lovely. I really like that image and I agree with Emily that the blue is calming.
